HUG - here for all audio enthusiasts

The Harbeth User Group is the primary channel for public communication with Harbeth's HQ. If you have a 'scientific mind' and are curious about how the ear works, how it can lead us to make the right - and wrong - audio equipment decisions, and about the technical ins and outs of audio equipment, how it's designed and what choices the designer makes, then the factual Science of Audio sub-forum area of HUG is your place. The objective methods of comparing audio equipment under controlled conditions has been thoroughly examined here on HUG and elsewhere and should be accessible to non-experts and able to be tried-out at home without deep technical knowledge. From a design perspective, today's award winning Harbeths could not have been designed any other way.

Alternatively, if you just like chatting about audio and subjectivity rules for you, then the Subjective Soundings area is you. If you are quite set in your subjectivity, then HUG is likely to be a bit too fact based for you, as many of the contributors have maximised their pleasure in home music reproduction by allowing their head to rule their heart. If upon examination we think that Posts are better suited to one sub-forum than than the other, they will be redirected during Moderation, which is applied throughout the site.

Questions and Posts about, for example, 'does amplifier A sounds better than amplifier B' or 'which speaker stands or cables are best' are suitable for the Subjective Soundings area only, although HUG is really not the best place to have these sort of purely subjective airings.

The Moderators' decision is final in all matters and Harbeth does not necessarily agree with the contents of any member contributions, especially in the Subjective Soundings area, and has no control over external content.

That's it! Enjoy!

    P3s changed my listening

    Congratulations!
    I own a pair in rosewood myself they changed my understanding of what true hifi is.
    They do not get in the way of music, they do not colour the sound, they are simply a window to it.
    You will not be disappointed.
    I've only had mine for a month or so, and I still laugh out loud listening to LPs because of how amazingly true of timbre, tone and decay instruments are reproduced.

        Escape from audiophile sound (with Harbeth)

        Just listened to the SHL5.. Couldn't have agreed more.. The timbre, tone and decay of the violin and piano were just amazing.. Never have I heard so much 'music'. And the vocals.. Wow.. Came back home to my system and now I know what it means by hifi sound..

        I find the Harbeth may not sound impressive immediately but it grows on you and it is addictive and then you realised how the other speakers just give you the hifi, audiophile sound. I am going to order the rosewood version too.. I heard the local dealer said it is going to be some anniversary version with better internal wiring..:-)

            I, too, would love a pair. If someone gave me a good price for my HL-P3s I would order a pair of P3ESRs immediately !

                My musical Harbeths

                Well, my P3ESRs have arrived. Everything I hoped they would be... Someone has bought the HL-P3s, so it's all worked out well.
                I now own the latest in Harbeth technology and also have examples of the first Harbeth speakers, the HL Monitors. These are Serial Number 228 A & B, so an early pair.
                Much musical satisfaction from both pairs of Harbeths, so I will not be buying any more speakers.
